I have a rra car4 wat size rail does it use. my first ar still learning
Need to read your manual. wat size gas system you got?
Its a 16in barrel, n I measured the hard guard and it measures 6 1/2 or so inchs,
So you have the carbine length gas system? What front sight do you have? What kind of rail do you want? FF or will you just get the handguard replacement style? Gotta start reading (stickys), and more importantly shooting, at least a few hundred rounds before upgrading parts.
I have gone to the range a couple times n have ran 300rounds or so thur it. Id like a drop in quad rail. Jus not sure the size.
7" - assuming you have 7" handguards and a standard end cap on a standard A2 style FSB/gas block.
But make sure that's really the case before buying anything. You might want to post a picture to help us tell.
I'm guessing its 7".
it measures about 6 and a half inches when I put a ruler to the handguard
You would need to acquire a Carbine length two piece drop in rail to make a change without removing the front sight/gas block.
Diamondhead, Yankee Hiil, Midwest Industries, and many other folks make the rails you describe.
Magpul makes a hand guard to which you can attach rails also.
You are in the early stages of BRD.

Get Daniel Defense Rail.. buy once cry once
there ya go. carbine length. under $40 and outstanding quality. I have this one and a yankee hill machine. I actually like this one better. i highly recommend. Drop in installation and rock solid. The cross bolts give added strength and the slots are numbered. I paid $140 for my yankee hill and will never do that again.
It looks good, so,there really isnt a big difference between the 40$ one n some that r up over $100 as long as they r made of same material?
As for quality?
I will say this: the $40 rail was easier to install, feel like better quality in my hand, has numbered rails, and cross bolts for extra strength than my $140 yankee hill machine rail.
My yankee hill machine rail required some fitting and filing to install, has fake cross bolts, does not have numbered rails, and provides a rock solid mount.
The gmg rail required no modification to install, has reinforcing crossbolts, has numbered rails, provides a rock solid mount.
The yhm rail is of excellent quality, but i prefer the gmg rail based on features and price
Ive never had a single problem with my yhm rail. I own one. And will never buy another. I have never had a single problem with my gmg rail, i own 4 for different rifles. If i need another, it will be gmg.
Thanks, think im getting that one
Now my understanding us that u may loss some accuracy when using a drop in rail, is this correct n how bad?
No, this is not correct
So what would be the difference in performance between ff and drop in?
I doubt you would see much difference.
